    I had it for all of a day when i took the stupid mud flaps off and took him in the dirt for the first time!

    after a few weeks I decided to make it more my own and i painted the grille emblem and the side and tailgate badges

    and my lovely girlfriend at the time decided to draw smiley faces in my headlights, which are premaritally etched onto my headlights

    [​IMG]

    The next idea i had was to paint the lower valance black, i was nervous about doing this, but it came out great!

    My taco stayed the same for a few months until I could save up for rims, tires, and a lift.

    Putin it to work with 1,200 pounds of gravel in the bed, after i did this I went and got the TSB springs put in.

    when i could finally saved up enough for rims and tires and hit up my uncle, who owns Rev Wheels. I gave him 1k in exchange for 4 rims and a set of general grabber AT2's

    I really liked how it looked, but I still wanted it to be taller. So i decided to get some Maxtack spindles and a wheelers 1.5" 3 leaf progressive pack!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Lift halfway on!!

    [​IMG]
